Most of us who live and work in Brooklyn or the other boroughs of New York City love our city life: being able to walk to restaurants down any street, direct access to theater, museums, and cultures, shopping right outside our doorsteps. We know firsthand all the plusses of living and working in the city. However, in an urban lifestyle, there are unique challenges and threats that we face as well. Today, we will specifically talk about the fire risks related to working and living in such close quarters and see what protective measures we can take.
When you stay at a hotel for the night – or several nights- while it’s not quite the same as being in your own bed, it’s still signals something out of the norm, a break from everyday life. As a hotel guest, we don’t usually think about what’s involved in making a comfortable stay – that’s the job of the hotel owner or manager. A concern that’s of significant importance to them is the safety of the guests, specifically, protection from fire. If a fire occurred in a hotel, especially during the night hours while guests are asleep, the results could be absolutely catastrophic. Today, we can be better protected from hotel fires by looking at some trends in their causes.
